After India, the Huawei Honor Holly is now ready to become available for sale in the UK too. It will be in stock at Amazon starting on March 6, and it’s been priced at just £74.99.
The story behind that price is rather interesting, though. Huawei had a starting price of £109.99 in mind, but told people that it would lower that if they shared information about the handset on social media. The more shares, the lower the price. This campaign has now ended with the aforementioned level reached.
That’s quite an innovative way of getting prospective customers involved in the pricing of a device, yet it has to be said that Huawei would have sold a much lower number of Honor Holly units had it stuck with its initial price level.
The phone comes with a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2MP secondary unit, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable built-in storage, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It’s powered by the MediaTek MT6582 chipset, which sports a 1.3 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and a Mali-400MP2 GPU.
The Honor Holly runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Huawei’s Emotion UI 2.3 on top. The main missing bit here is 4G LTE support, though dual-SIM functionality is baked in.
